CLIMBING HELICAL STAIRS-AN UNUSUAL CAUSE OF PERONEAL NEUROPATHY: A CASE REPORT

Atif Ahmed Khan

Abstract


Peroneal neuropathy is a common focal compression neuropathy presenting with foot drop.  Wide variety of conditions results in peroneal neuropathy around the knee which includes habitual and occupational related, trauma related, post-surgical or sports related. I present here a case where repetitive climbing helical stairs caused clinically and electrodiagnostically proven peroneal neuropathy around knee in a 53 years old male. The patient underwent twelve week of comprehensive rehabilitation following which he showed substantial improvement in functional activities.

KEYWORDS: Peroneal Neuropathies (MeSH), Electromyography (MeSH), Neural Conduction (MeSH)
